On March 25, 2020, in the midst of the pandemic, Bindi and Powell exchanged handwritten vows in a small ceremony at Australia Zoo officiated by a local celebrant. In attendance were lots of animals and just three guests: Irwin's mom, Terri; her younger brother Robert; and her late father's best friend, Wes Mannion.

"We didn't really have a schedule, so we were like, 'Well, let's just have breakfast then get ready whenever we feel like it,'" Bindi previously told PEOPLE. "It was almost like we were eloping. Kind of crazy and certainly not what we had planned, but I think that made it even more special. Even if it wasn't by-the-book perfect, it was our perfect."

"We thought about postponing, because you want to share this day with everyone, but when it boiled down to it, we both just said, 'Look, we desperately want to get married, and no matter what the future holds, at least we'll be husband and wife. We can take on the world together,' " she added at the time.
